I’m at the final stages of the build.
The next step was to assemble the drawers. Nothing fancy . . . I just butted the pieces together with a little homemade glue and nailed them them with 23g pin nails. The button pull on the front are actually oak button plugs that I had left over from another project. I drilled a hole through the drawer front (after finding the center), drilled a hole in the back of the pull and then screwed it on from the back of the drawer front.
DW then reminded me that she wanted a place for springy hair clips (a dowel) in the box. A quick measurement, a little sanding, and two brads had each one in place.
In the picture below you will see all sorts of little smudges on the boxes . . . that is my home made wood filler. Its Knox gelatin and sawdust. It has worked for me quite well on other projects as a nail hole and gap filler. This project was a little more challenging as the holes left by the 23g pin nails were so small that it was difficult to get any material in the holes. I guess I will see how it works when I sand off the excess.
